Southwest Junior Rowing Championships 2016

It was the oddest of junior rowing champs. This weekend is notorious for being 100 degrees with a blazing sun beating down. This year, rather, we were toting umbrellas and adding extra layers for warmth.

Our main focus was my brother, Raphael’s, race. He was with Capital Crew’s JV Men’s 8, in the first wave.

They were speeding down the course in 3rd most of the way. You can see how close everyone is here.

The intensity of that drive!

Hardly a moment for recovery.

Those last 250 meters or so another boat made the final push past. They were nearly seat to seat crossing the finish line. It was a hardly a second between them that meant a 4th place finish for Captial’s boat. Top 3 went to finals. Gah! So close.
